If you plan to open a small cafe business and don’t have more funds to rent a place, you can use your home to open a business. Without many renovations, you can have a simple but decent area to serve food and drinks. In this idea book, five cafe designs are easily realized and also quite interesting to make consumers want to come.
Cafe on the ground floor
This house and cafe were built by FAD. The house with a square-shaped floor has been renovated to provide an area for the bar. Based on the idea of home comfort, the architect uses solid wood furniture and natural wood color in the open air with wide windows for a broad impression. Guests can enjoy a glass of tea and cakes with a splash of natural light and sounds from familiar surroundings. This design is suitable for cafes in homes that are in settlements that are not too crowded.
Renovations from the old house
This small cafeteria is located in a suburban area, renovated from old houses and depots that have long been abandoned at this time of inspiration. Rough earth, with warm-colored gypsum plaster on the ceiling, with traditional wooden boards that create a warm and peaceful impression for guests who enjoy coffee and pizza, is the theme of this area. The contrast between classic and modern impression, white and black colors also complement this perfect design.
Innovative ideas for utilizing available space
The following cafe is also a grocery store built on the outskirts of the city, surrounded by views of the sky, river, and mountains that stretch. Architects from IN DESCN OFFICE have successfully transformed open spaces into an increasingly familiar area and as a shopping area. All walls in this building are planned and arranged so that they can move according to weather conditions. Under the wide terrace, the cafe area is always bathed in the sun and gets a cool breeze. In winter, in smaller areas, the air becomes warmer with increasingly striking wood colors.
It turns out that the cafe can also be designed and established in a Greenhouse, aka a greenhouse. This conservation area is usually part of a larger park, on the terrace or in front of the gate. Transparency of the glass allows the planting of many trees and plants, providing an interesting reflection for guests to enjoy tea while reading. Also, the costs spent on material, construction time, and ease of licensing compared to conventional construction make greenhouses a cafe is a promising business trend in several countries in Europe and Asia, such as in Japan and Indonesia.
This commercial project has already been mentioned in workshops on the reconstruction of modern architecture. The ground floor area of the three floors has been transformed into a cafe with wooden walls and natural white ceilings. What was once a pastel-colored kitchen is now a place with unique decor and a new look. The room arrangement itself is very smart, using a high stool and a table attached to the wall so that the center of the room is more flexible.
